On Monday, The Weeknd confirmed he will perform twice in Toronto in September.
Local hero “I’m coming back with… a vengeance,” he said on Twitter. Rogers [Centre] will host the second night of the ‘greatest show on planet’.
The Weeknd has said that ticketing details would be released “soon.”
The singer’s show at Rogers Centre on July 8 was cancelled due to a service failure, but he has rescheduled it for September 22.
However, The Weeknd’s After Hours ‘til Dawn Tour didn’t officially begin until July 14 in Philadelphia. The BC Place show in Vancouver on August 23 was the only other Canadian appearance.
After The Weeknd’s last U.S. gig on September 3, he’ll take a little rest before playing two nights in Toronto.
When he announced the After Hours Tour in February of 2020, the singer said he will also be performing in Edmonton, Winnipeg, and Montreal, his first Canadian shows since 2017. Three months later, he announced that, because of the epidemic, the tour would be starting a year earlier than planned. However, the trip was once again delayed in February of 2021.

The news that The Weeknd was cancelling the After Hours Tour reached the public in October 2021. There was a statement on his social media that said, “Due to limits of arenas and the desire for additional concerts I want to do something greater and unique for you which necessitates stadiums.”
This current After Hours ‘Til Dawn Tour was announced by The Weeknd back in early March.
